A while back, I joined the South Asian Bloggers Network Facebook group, which consisted of South Asian Bloggers (duh!) living in the US and Canada. Initially starting of strictly as a business networking thing, it quickly morphed into a fun interaction where we now exchange tips of hair care, clothes, and mom stuff! Particularly, I enjoyed my interactions with the admins, Salma and Raj. So, when they, along with Nisha, invited us to join their linkup for Three Things Thursday, I was completely on board!
1. I’ve been very infrequent in posting, and that’s because I’m taking on a lot of workload now, and that’s because I plan to go to India this year in the July!! All very exciting and I hope to regale you with more stories about my trip! If you remember last time, I had quite a bit to blog about!
2. I also joined the Annual 31 Day Mommitment Event created by Julie Maida which takes place every year from May 1st to the 31st dedicated to offering compassion and support to moms everywhere!! Mommitment means Mom+Commitment and helps us to set aside differences moms may have in the way we bring up our kids, connect with each other, offer a shoulder to cry on when things seem tough, and promotes understanding and helping out both online and offline! It’s not too late to join and make a Mommitment!
3. I hate to end on a negative note but the urge nowadays to write has left me in the wake of the many many nasty things that have happened all over the world and that which we repeatedly witness on social media. I often wish I had never scrolled down the comment section of online articles, posts and status updates. It’s a waste of effort to hope that some people could ever change so I’ve decided to take steps, for my own sanity, to interact only with those people on my timeline who are just, fair, and open-minded.
Overall, my social media has helped me build these friendships and interactions that I otherwise would never have. I’m grateful for those people who have befriended me without quite knowing who I was. I do hope to see some of you this August in Blogher16 taking place in Los Angeles!! Eeeeeee!!!!! Can’t wait!
Thank you, Raj, Salma, and Nisha for hosting this lovely linkup and including me in your lovely community!
